    Nice outdoor seating area - unfortch when we were there the service was terribly slow and a band started playing so loud we couldn't have a conversation.

    I wasn't able to eat here because I wanted the takoyaki from the Love Balls Bus. But I could not get over the calm and welcoming atmosphere of the outdoor cafe. Hopefully I'll be back in Austin. •﹏•

    When I lived here back in 2002, Spider House was one of the most popular hipster coffee shops. Now it seems to be a (less severely) hipster bar & music venue but with the same nice environment.

    The atmosphere and throw-together decor are what really makes Spider House the Austin staple that it is. It's definitely a "weird" place to get together with friends!

    Don't come here if you're looking to eat. Small portions, long wait, bad service and not worth the price. I guess it's a good place to just sit and drink.

    Not the place to make a quick stop. Spider House is all about good food and good company. Service is slow. Great for studying and socializing, but it is loud. Food not best, but pie, queso, hummus.
  • Social N.
    For a great cup of coffee and cheap breakfast tacos, hit Spiderhouse up, though outside table service doesn't start until 10 AM.

    This may be a slight hike from downtown but they have one of Austin’s best patios, an ace beer selection (try Austin Beer Works: Peacemaker), wi-fi, lots of plugs to power up, and even a thrift store.
